  • Laparoscopic Management of Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma: a Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Indian J Surg. 2016 Feb; 78(1):57-9.Puntambekar S, Sharma V, … Parikh H
  • The only option for cure of Klatskin's tumour is surgical excision. The radicality of the procedure is determined by the extent of the tumour and functional parameters of the patient. Complete laparoscopic resection of hilar cholangiocarcinoma with biliary reconstruction is a challenging procedure. The main aim is to achieve pathological negative margins, complete lymph node retrieval and enterob…
  • Choledochoduodenal fistula: an unusual case of pneumobilia. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2014 Oct 13; 2014Fedidat R, Safadi W, … Hadary A
  • Pneumobilia is the finding of air in the biliary tree. Most cases are iatrogenic in origin, especially after sphincterotomy and after hepaticojejunostomy or choledochojejunostomy. In patients without such history, the presence of pneumobilia needs further investigation. Most patients are likely to have an enterobiliary fistula. Although patients may be asymptomatic, possible complications include…
  • Perforating Crohn's disease: conservative and surgical treatment. [Review]
    Dig Dis. 2013; 31(2):218-21.Sampietro GM, Casiraghi S, Foschi D
  • Surgery is a part of the clinical history of patients with Crohn's disease (CD) since nearly all the patients receive at least one surgical procedure. The main indication for surgery is obstruction, but 50-60% of patients present a concomitant perforating disease at surgery, and 10% of patients have a primary indication for abscess or fistula. Generally, fistulas are classified on an anatomical b…
  • Acute cholangitis due to afferent loop syndrome after a Whipple procedure: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Cases J. 2009 Aug 25; 2:6339.Spiliotis J, Karnabatidis D, … Siamblis D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our case demonstrates a rare complication with serious clinical manifestation of the afferent loop syndrome. This advanced form of afferent loop syndrome led to the development of huge enterobiliary reflux, which had a serious clinical manifestation as cholangitis and systemic sepsis, due to bacterial overgrowth, which usually present in the afferent loop. The diagnosis is difficult and the interventional radiology gives all the details to support the therapeutic decision making. A variety of factors can contribute to its development including adhesions, kinking and angulation of the loop, stenosis of gastro-jejunal anastomosis and internal herniation. In order to decompress the afferent loop dilatation due to adhesions, a lateral-lateral jejunal anastomosis was performed between the afferent loop and a small bowel loop.
  • [Mirizzi syndrome with cholecystoduodenal fistula--a rare complication of cholecyctolithiasis]. [Case Reports]
    Cas Lek Cesk. 2009; 148(4):164-7.Paseka T, Veverková L, … Ciernik J
  • Mirizzi syndrome is a rare complication of the long-term gallbladder stone disease. It's caused by a gallbladder stone impression to the common bile duct wall. The clinical appearance is an obstructive jaundice, pain in right subchondrium and dyspepsia. Higher pressure in the extrahepatal bile ducts leads to biliobiliary or enterobiliary fistula formation. In the described case a cholecystoduoden…
  • Adverse effects of barium sulfate in the biliary tract. [Case Reports]
    Diagn Interv Radiol. 2008 Jun; 14(2):94-6.Walsham A, Larsen J
  • Reflux of barium sulfate preparations into the biliary tract is rare, but serious complications have been recorded. To consider the implications of such reflux through enterobiliary stents, the literature was reviewed. A case illustrating such an occurrence is presented. Based upon the limited literature available, barium suspension may be retained in particular circumstances and cause or contrib…
  • Enterobiliary fistula as a complication of eosinophilic gastroenteritis: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Korean J Radiol. 2008 May-Jun; 9(3):275-8.Kim HM, Woo JY
  • Eosinophilic gasteroenteritis is an uncommon disease with variable clinical features characterized by eosinophilic infiltration. Clinical manifestations range from non-specific gastrointestinal complaints such as nausea, vomiting, crampy abdominal pain, and diarrhea to specific findings such as malabsorption, protein loosing enteropathy, luminal obstruction, eosinophilic ascites and effusion. We …
  • Multidisciplinary approach to benign biliary strictures. [Journal Article]
    Curr Treat Options Gastroenterol. 2007 Apr; 10(2):90-101.Costamagna G, Familiari P, … Mutignani M
  • The various approaches used for the management of patients with benign biliary strictures are justified by the diverse nature, clinical presentation, and severity of these strictures. Benign biliary strictures are most commonly postoperative, a consequence of injury during laparoscopic cholecystectomy or fibrosis after biliary duct-to-duct or bilioenteric anastomoses (ie, liver transplantation). …
  • Liver abscess after radiofrequency ablation of tumors in patients with a biliary tract procedure. [Journal Article]
    Gastroenterol Clin Biol. 2006 Jun-Jul; 30(6-7):823-7.Elias D, Di Pietroantonio D, … De Baere T
  • CONCLUSIONS: When RFA is performed in a patient with a preexisting biliary diversion, the risk of developing a liver abscess is high. Currently, we are unable to recommend any kind of preventive antibiotherapy. A preexisting biliary diversion is not an absolute contraindication for RFA, but the risk of developing a liver abscess is close to 40-50%. When RFA is performed synchronously with a biliary diversion, the risk of a liver abscess seems to disappear.
  • Pediatric liver transplantation: ten years of experience in a multicentric program in Chile. [Multicenter Study]
    Transplant Proc. 2005 Oct; 37(8):3375-7.Uribe M, Buckel E, … Calabrán L
  • Liver transplantation is the only treatment for patients with terminal acute and chronic diseases. Liver transplantation was started in Chile in 1985; our pediatric program began in 1993. The aim of this paper work was to present our experience from 1993 through 2004. One hundred and thirty two orthotopic liver transplants (OLT) were performed in children of mean age 5 years and median age 4 year…
  • Enterobiliary fistula after radiofrequency ablation of liver metastases. [Case Reports]
    J Vasc Interv Radiol. 2003 Dec; 14(12):1581-4.Bessoud B, Doenz F, … Denys A
  • A 46-year-old man underwent radiofrequency (RF) ablation of three liver metastases 7 months after undergoing right colectomy for a pT2N0Mx colon adenocarcinoma. Three months after the procedure, he developed hepatic abscesses related to a fistula between the distal ileum and segment V biliary branches.
  • Cholecystoduodenal fistula in a porcelain gallbladder. [Case Reports]
    Eur Radiol. 2002 Sep; 12(9):2284-6.Delpierre I, Tack D, … Delcour C
  • Calcification of the gallbladder wall (porcelain gallbladder) is rare. Its appearance is quite characteristic on plain films, ultrasonography and computed tomography. Sporadic cases of cholecystitis have been described in porcelain gallbladders. Enterobiliary fistula may complicate acute or chronic cholecystitis in non-calcified gallbladder. We report a unusual case of acute cholecystitis with ch…
  • Technique of laparoscopic cholecystojejunostomy with a Roux-en-Y loop. [Journal Article]
    Surg Laparosc Endosc. 1993 Oct; 3(5):386-90.Schöb O, Schlumpf R, … Largiadèr F
  • In order to avoid laparotomy in patients with biliary obstruction due to inoperable carcinoma of the pancreatic head, we evaluated the feasibility of a bypass operation using minimal invasive measures. A technique of laparoscopic cholecystojejunostomy was tested in adult pigs who had undergone clip occlusion of the distal common bile duct to imitate choledochal obstruction. Complete biliary bypas…
  • [Massive hemobilia caused by necrotic hemorrhagic cholecystitis. Report of a case]. [Case Reports]
    Minerva Chir. 1993 Aug; 48(15-16):857-60.Bazzoni C, Serini M, … Lombardi C
  • The authors report a case of massive hematobilia due to hemorrhagic cholecystitis. Hematobilia is a rare pathology which affects the biliary tract and gallbladder. The first authors to describe hematobilia defined it as a hemorrhage of the gastroenteric tract due to the communication of blood vessels with the intra and extra-hepatic biliary tract and in some rare cases to the communication of the…
  • Cherry stalk in the common bile duct. [Case Reports]
    Aust N Z J Surg. 1993 Jul; 63(7):571-4.Kelly MD, Hugh TB
  • Ingested biliary foreign bodies occur most frequently in patients who have had previous biliary operations, which predisposes them to enterobiliary reflux. This report describes an unusual ingested foreign body of the common bile duct in a patient with no history of previous gastrointestinal surgery.
